Remote monitoring for independent living and home care
Know your residents are okay, be alerted if they're not

No need for residents to push a button everyday as a “check-in.” CarePenguin tells you if they’ve been up and about in their home.
How it works
CarePenguin detects activity in a house through hot water use
The CarePenguin Activity Sensor simply detects anytime someone turns on a tap in their house. Hot water use is an excellent indicator of human behavior. Know if patients go about their day like normal and detect lack of activity.

No need for motion sensors or cameras in every room–just one CarePenguin sensor.
Water use is a signal for activity in a home
